1  How do I make a Mesh/Net/String market Bag? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by techprincesse on: March 31, 2008 12:06:31 PM
I have been looking all over DC for a string bag, they are sometimes called eurobags or ecobags, looks like a big fishnet pouch, but they are in none of the organic markets around me. So now 3 days before a vacation to Vegas I am trying to attempt to make one and I dont know how on earth to start. I tried to attach a photo below. And before its suggested I do not crochet at all. I need something that can be made with a sewing machine... Its too late to order one from online... Help?

2  HELP! garment "insides" and more anomalies... in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by techprincesse on: January 07, 2008 06:03:37 PM
Alright, I have been on this site for months and never actualy "finished" a project... Except now! Well sort of... I dreamed up this be-you-ti-ful outfit that I was going to wear on New Year's that would prompt the man of my dreams to whisk me off my feet, yadda, yadda... I never found an actual pattern, but i thought it was simple enough to wing it right?  Hence this project being worked on about 5 minutes a day for the past month... But alas! I never finished the top part before New Years! Which is quite sad since all that was left to be done on New Year's Eve was adding the zipper.  No worries, I will wear it for Single's Awareness Day (Valentines)... lol  So by some obvious stroke of idleness I decided to finish it tonight... And I DID. ANd it actually fits! But now I don't know how to finish the "insides."

I used an invisible zipper, firstly and trying to line up the sides of the top were HELL considering one side was shorter then the next and I winged the pattern all by memory since it was something I literally was wearing in a dream... Anywho, since i just made it all up as I went along the inside of the top has a whole of of raggedy, jagged edges and some long pieces that I don't know how to finish. And on top of that the invisible zipper has a long "tail" that extended over the top of the shirt and I dont know if I can cut it or what? I dont want it to start unraveling.  I am attaching a photo so people know what I mean...

On top of that, the bust part fits perfect except the top inch or so. And I'm wearing my biggest push up bra to boot! So can I add some elastic to the top to make it tighter? Or would that look too cheesy with the top puckered with elastic? Another pic for reference... (you can also see the invisible zipper overextending the top, I wanted it to zip all the way up like all other dresses/tops I have. Can I cut the top part of the zipper without it fraying?)

SO 4 issues...
1. buncha extra fabric inside
2. long tail of invisible zipper hanging over
3. not enough boobs, do I add elastic?

Any help/insight will be appreciated!
